Woodone creates handmade glasses out of a piece of plywood, all made in South Tyrol. These two new designs caught my attention, very delicate shape and amazing glitter surface. Glam glasses 2.0!

I’ve heard several opticians being very conservative when it comes to wooden frames. A typical argument against wooden frames is that you can’t adjust them, Woodone however, has done a great job showing how to bend a Woodone-wooden frame in this video:
Some good looking party ladies I met at one of the many daytime parties of Burning man last week. So many cool people!! More to come, stay tuned…
Juha, founder of Mahonki; an online store, one day stumbled upon a pair of wooden glasses and was immediately amazed. We at Bonocle love wooden glasses as well as you can read about here, here, here and here. It feels so nice against the skin and the frames are very light.
These are our favorites from Mahonki.

Love this combination! The total opposite of what we’re used to see on acetate/metal eyewear. Normally they have acetate on top, like to Clubmaster style. But this is just geeky and awesome!
Or what about super round with double nose bridge like this one. Love it!

We’ve heard about many different ways of making eyewear. Lately maybe even more; skateboards and wood to mention a few. One of the biggest trends at Silmo was definitely classic shapes out of new materials, mostly wood though.
This is the first time I hear about eyewear made of recycling Vinyl records! Vinylize Eyeworks offer sunglasses made from vinyl records, all made and hand finished in their own workshop located in Budapest. Vintage meets futuristic style!
The Vinylize Method:
